After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Lyoto Machida, Rob Font and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (pictured) each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 175: Weidman vs. Machida.”
Weidman successfully defended his 185-pound title against Machida in Saturday’s featured attraction. Their 25-minute affair was good enough to earn “Fight of the Night.”
It took Rousey all of 16 seconds to dispose of Alexis Davis. It will take her twice as long to deposit her “Performance of the Night” check.
Font has been delivering pizzas for the past few years. The UFC gave him his fattest tip Saturday after knocking out George Roop.
UFC 175 took place inside Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Fight of the Night:
Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida ($50,000/each)
Performances of the Night:
Ronda Rousey & Rob Font ($50,000/each)
